Apple QuickTime CVE-2011-0247 H.264 Movie Files Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Apple QuickTime is prone to multiple stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because of a failure to properly bounds-check user-supplied data.

Successful exploits will allow attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the currently logged-in user; failed exploit attempts may cause denial-of-service conditions.

Versions prior to QuickTime 7.7 are vulnerable.

NOTE: These issues were previously discussed in BID 48993 (Apple QuickTime Prior To 7.7 Multiple Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerabilities) but has been given their own record to better document them.
